help with ftp

Post by grasshoper on Mon Apr 06, 2009 8:39 am

Hi there,

I have just brought a nas device and have connected it to my home router. It has a built in ftp client which i have set up.

I have 2 questions:

1) How can I make it so the ftp server can be accessed over the internet, not just locally on my network. I think I have done this, but not sure if its set up correctly. I went into my routers config page, and added the nas's ip address to the "default dmz server"? Can someone clarify?

2) WHen i visit my ip address over the internet, i get the nas config login page, how can i change the port of the login? I did this with the router login, changed the ip to 8080.. Does port forwarding/triggering have something to do with this?

Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks tonnes. Smile Smile

1) That's one way.
2) Are you using your public IP address to connect from outside your network? It is the external IP address shown at www.portforward.com.

Okay, i think i have it, i just need one thing:

when i visit my external ip address, i get my nas login page, how can I change the port of the nas login, or better yet, make it so I cant login over the internet.

Thanks.

If there is remote control in the router on that port, try disabling the remote control entry for it.

Thanks for your reply, All i really want to do now is host a website on my nas. Everything else is working fine now. Is it possible to, say, install xampp or something onto the nas to host a website?

I really doubt the NAS has the capability to host a website, best it's going to do is an FTP server.

By the way, FTP uses port 21, not port 80 or 8080.

Yes, i know ftp runs on port 21.

As for nas not being able to run a website, shame, but thats what I needed to know. Thanks for your help.
